Very delicious slow cooked food. The Mac and cheese sets a new bar as far as tastiness, you will never have a better mac and cheese anywhere. Serving sizes are a bit on the small size. Wide selection of micro brews with a knowledgable staff who can steer you in the right direction in regards to beer choices based on... More

We went during restaurant week and had their special. Starting with the great- the service was wonderful, very attentive and knowledgeable and responsive. We were also impressed with the taste of the food and great beer selection. Moving to the not as positive- the portions were incredibly small. I am a very petite 5 foot tall woman and I was... More

I really enjoy eating at this restaurant. My husband and I have been there many times for their beer selection and food. Recently we visited for my husbands 50th birthday and we brought our teenagers with us. We all had a good time with a few laughs at my husbands expense. I recommend this restaurant for fresh local food and... More

Decided to go out for brunch and ordered the buttermilk pancakes with peach syrup. I felt like I had died and gone to heaven! It was very delicious and the service was excellent.

Used to visit here frequently with other couples and girls' night out! Have eaten here recently two times, one most recently on July 26th. The menu has changed, the service was marginal and sadly, the food is not like it used to be, unequivocally. I ordered a Kale salad that was incredilbly bland- it had cherries instead of other items... More

My husband and I took two of our European friends here on our way back from MA. There was limited (normal height/seats with backs) table space, but lots of standing room and bar height seating with stools. If you have back problems this might be difficult. We were there for an early dinner on a Sunday and the place was... More

Dined here on a Saturday afternoon, which to my surprise was a brunch menu (the website does list that lunch is Monday-Friday, an oversight on my part). We had a large party, including a couple of picky eaters (hence the concern about the lack of the expected lunch hamburger) all of whom enjoyed their meals including waffles, quiche, pork belly,...

I decided to look at some of the poor reviews...unbelievable. It's like they were talking about a place I've never been. We go to Armsby periodically, we are always welcomed warmly. Folks are upset they can't bring their newborns...really? That's how one should judge a bar/restaurant? The food is great, unusual, inventive and local. The beer selection is creative and... More

I've been once before and had a great meal, for brunch the last time. This time I brought my husband with me and we went to sit at the bar, usually a great experience and love talking to the bartender etc, usually feels like you get better service. However, not this time. We were hardly recognized, the bartender was too... More

Maybe Sun. evening just isn't the best time to go. At 6:30 PM sat at the bar where there were plenty of seats available. My friend & I asked for dinner menus & ordered a couple of interesting beers. Friend ordered pulled pork sandwich---NO JERK SAUCE & French fries. The sandwich (what he could eat of it) burnt holes in... More
